5 Foods For Fit and Healthy Celebrity Hair ♥


Ever wish you had celebrity hair? Beautiful, healthy and shiny hair that seems to be perfect?

If you’re forever gazing at glossy magazines and wondering how on earth the stars manage to keep their hair perfect, here is the secret to great hair: keep it healthy! Your hair needs the right nutrients and vitamins to stay healthy and strong, ust like your body.

Let’s start off with foods that you eat which will leave you with luxurious, shiny healthy hair! Having a balanced diet, while putting a little extra emphasis on things like protein and iron, gives your hair a boost.



 



Here are my top four foods for fit and healthy celebrity hair: 

1. Dark green veggies. Load up on spinach, broccoli, and Swiss chard. They’re packed with vitamins A and C, which help produce sebum—a scalp oil that works as a natural hair conditioner.

They’re full of biotin, a B vitamin that promotes hair growth and overall scalp health. A deficiency can cause brittle hair. Other high-biotin foods include peanuts, almonds, wheat bran, salmon, low-fat cheese, and avocados.

2. Oysters. Opt for these to get plenty of zinc, a mineral that helps regulate the production of androgens. These are hormones that, in low levels, are associated with hair loss. People with low levels of androgens can also suffer from slow hair growth and dandruff. Adjusting your diet—and emphasizing zinc-rich choices like oysters, along with crab, clams, liver, lean beef, and wheat germ—will help stave off hair loss and keep your mane shiny and healthy.

3. Fruits and veggies. They’re full of vitamin C, which helps your body absorb iron. Not getting enough vitamin C can make the hair dry and weak. The best sources of vitamin C? Broccoli, leafy greens, green peppers, citrus fruit, and strawberries.

4. Omega-3 fatty acids. They support scalp health; a deficiency can lead to dry scalp and dull hair. Good sources include salmon, sardines, herring, mackerel, flaxseeds, and walnuts.





Always dreamed of celebrity hair? Well,  you can get started by giving your hair the healthy nutrients it needs! ♥
